War: When Will We Learn?

Two young Australian soldiers died in Afghanistan. Sapper Jacob Moerland, 21, and Darren Smith, 26, from the 2nd Combat Engineer Regiment were killed while on patrol. It was Jacob Moerland's first overseas deployment. He was 21 and engaged to be married. Darren Smith had a wife and young son in Brisbane. This was his first deployment too. He was a handler for an explosives detection dog named Herbie who also died.

Why are we there? To stop the Taliban? Or is it about oil? Protecting "interests".
What will it achieve? Things will remain the same. Women will still be kept in submission, human rights - what human rights? 6o - 80 % of women are forced into marriage. Countries send in armies and young men will die and nothing will change.

That is the real tragedy.

Have we learnt nothing?

Diane, yes both lads were from Queensland. I was fiddling around trying to remove the new blogger template designer. I think I've mucked up the code, and have posted on blogger forum. I hope they can help me get it back. Meanwhile, I'll post on my other Melbourne blog - "Melbourne and Surrounds"
